If you were going to war with Japan and might either be embargoed or have your freighters sunk, you’d get ready.

Maybe spending your dollars before they become worthless or are replaced 1000 to 1 with the “new dollar”?

I think China is preparing for the day when they bring out a gold-backed Renmimbi.

Things will get sketchy in the US for several months after that happens (riots, price controls, misallocation of Government force etc) and food exports will suffer. The Chinese want to be able to weather volatile food prices when that happens.

One of the dumbest things done by the Free Trader Communists was to let Communist China become the big agricultural supplier to the world ....even though Com China has 6% arable land and its main crop area is subject to natural disasters. Com China is preparing in case their crops are destroyed. The rest of the world will starve but not the Chi Coms

That’s about 4 or 5 pounds of rice per person.

If they’re planning to feed only their One Percent, then they don’t need to invade anything.

How about corrupt Chinese rice speculators?

"The Russians have scheduled 5,000 underground bunkers for completion this year.

In the mean time, our government has been stocking up on ammo while trying to take ours, beefing up surveillance on us while opening the borders to foreign invaders and suing states that try to enforce border law and prosecute them and writing policy "law" that says it's okay for obama to drone strike Americans if he feels like it while the one stream media gurgles and coos obama's name.

I don't know how long the big event we're heading for will last or what the world will look like on the other side of it, but the slow motion deception mosey we're walking to get to there is fascinating and quite unnerving.

Meanwhile, our gov’t is stockpiling .40 cal ammunition to
be used domestically. Who’s up to no good?

Unless oil is also being stockpiled, this activity is probably related to China’s peculiar financial system, which is rife with crony lending and lacks avenues for savings in the form of reliable financial instruments in the hands of trustworthy intermediaries. And since the well-connected can obtain foreign exchange and loans to import and stockpile industrial metals and foodstuffs, these become a form of savings that can be converted into ready cash and other useful assets. We may tentatively conclude that a relative increase in this form of savings in part expresses a negative view as to the Chinese business environment.

They’ve hired this guy named Joseph who tells them that their warehouses had better be full because although they are having seven years of good fortune, these will be followed by seven years of hard times.
